In “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, the community was dominated by exposing pain, the other way round, in “Brave New World”, the society was dominated by exposing pleasure. These observations lead us to today’s world order and make us think about the conditions of today. As far as I’m concerned, both Orwell and Huxley predicted right about the possible dangers about the system. However, governments and authorities use the two methods wisely that they apply
Question 1: The three examples of figurative language that I am going to analyze are, rhetorical questions, personification, and similes . Rhetorical question: “Here or elsewhere, what did it matter? Die today, or tomorrow, or later.” (Wiesel 98) This example of a Rhetorical question really adds to the text by almost forcing the reader to think to themselves, and actually try to answer the question that is being asked. It involves the reader and therefore can make the story more appealing to them. Rhetorical questions impact me as a reader by, engaging me into the text and also by making me think about what is being talked about in the book.
Regardless of whether characters in the books we read reflect others or ourselves, what is most critical is interfacing with them in ways that allow us to comprehend our identity today. Here and there finding out about our history through the eyes of various characters can be agitating or even agonizing, yet it additionally can be an enlivening to the obscure. Diversity in literature is also important because it has some influence on how different people are seen or not by some other cultures according to literature. When analyzing literary works, we must first see the structure of the work such as plot, which is the way that the author arranges the ideas or incidents that have place in the story. We also must take a close look to the character which is essential to the plot, without characters the writing would not have a true sense.
The future is full of chaos, as people prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; furthermore, the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Accordingly, different predictions on what will occur throughout the novel are the ideals of postmodernist literature. Moreover, one way an author can write in a nonlinear, flexible fashion is to write with a component of mystery.
As there are many readers for a text, there are varieties of interpretations, almost equal to the number of the readers who read the text. Although some of the readers have the same attitude, there are many new attitudes toward a text during the history of a work. The present study has been concerned with a reading from the views of Said, Bhabha and Fanon. The Grass is Singing is rich sources for other interpretations, so they deserve to be analyzed and interpreted based on different approaches. Here it is presented some suggestions for those who intend to study and observe these literary works from other perspectives.
Although, instead of developing this idea, Alexie fought it, and showed how he was able to overcome this ideological barrier by harnessing the power of reading. On the other hand, Furedi decided to provide evidence towards the fact that reading was a health hazard for the majority of the article. He explored the evolving, negative mindset towards reading throughout history, before eventually making his point that reading is “good” because of its unparalleled power. However, Furedi consistently included evidence and counterarguments, including how reading was represented as an “‘insidious contagion’ [and] was often coupled with sightings of irrational destructive behavior” (Furedi 3). Furedi constructed his argument in a manner in which he scrutinized the opposing argument in order to provide evidence for his inevitable conclusion on the subject.
The following comparison will be based on the cartoon essay Science Tales: Lies, Hoaxes, and Scams written by Darryl Cunningham in 2012, as well as “Dire Predictions about Climate Change”, written in form of letters to the editor of The New York Times, 15.05.2012. The two texts share the common theme of climate change. The obvious similarity between the two texts is the focus on climate change and where it comes from, as well as attempting to make the reader think a certain way. They want to persuade the reader to believe their particular point of view with reference to the controversy over global warming. The main difference between the two texts is the medium used to display and explore the ideas.
Historical Criticism insisted that to understand a literary piece, we need to understand the author's biography and social background, ideas circulating at the time, and the cultural milieu. This school of criticism fell into disfavor as the New Critics emerged. New Historicism seeks to find meaning in a text by considering the work within the framework of the prevailing ideas and assumptions of its historical era. New Historicists concern themselves with the political function of literature and with the concept of power, the intricate means by which cultures produce and reproduce themselves. These critics focus on revealing the historically specific model of truth and authority (not a "truth" but a "cultural construct") reflected in a given
ABSTRACT Representing multicultural communities and the resultant displacement in any book by the writers is a matter of quest and an urgent question in Diasporic literatures to get an answer for. There are certain ubiquitous and mundane characteristics and also some contradictions among the people, nations, groups, or continents. Nation has been considered as a form of “restrictively imagined collectivities” (Anderson 147) by Amitav Ghosh in “A correspondence on provincializing Europe”. Some writers started writing, discussing in their literature, the concept of displacement and the many difficulties involved in it. I am presenting Amitav Ghosh as one such novelist who brought it in his novels and through the imaginary characters displaying
It tells us about facets that have currently been established or concluded by other authors, and provides a chance to appreciate the evidence that has been collected by preceding investigation, and therefore project the recent investigation perform in the proper perspective. Overview of literature is also crucial to highlight variations in opinions, contradictory findings or evidences, and the various explanations provided for their conclusions. In some cases, an examination of these aspects can assist in comprehending several aspects of a complicated concern and at other times such evaluation can lead to new prospects that can be researched upon in the current undertaking. Sometimes, if the analysis proposed by one has currently been undertaken earlier, it offers an option for modifying the perform by including a new point of view or altering some of the methods of research to acquire a point of view that will be diverse from earlier works and as a result much more useful. Sometimes, the operate may be a precise repetition of the perform carried out earlier but with a various set of data or sources of facts; then the purpose of the analysis might be just to relate if the results are equivalent to earlier works or otherwise.
